Why convert it, if it runs good? We ran an LP SM for LOTS of years with no trouble. Its fuel efficient & really clean running. Changed oil only 2X per year-lighter in winter & heavier in summer-it never got dirty. (My $0.02 worth. jal-SD)

Thanks for the info. I have had no experience with LP tractors. I have a 500 gallon tank for the house. Can you use an adapter to fill the tractor from this, or how do you fill the tractor. I guess I should know more before I consider converting it to gasoline.

If your tank feeds the house from the bottom and is accessible, you can put a Tee on it there and a hose with a valve to fill your tractor. If you do not have access to the fitting at the bottom/tank is on the ground, you can wait till your tank is empty this summer and have a wet line and valve installed at the top. Then you will attach a hose with a valve at the end to this and fill the tracot rfrom there. Like the guy in SD said, your local gas man will know if he has been around. The most expensive part is the valve for the hose, All together my rig was about $90 for tank valve, hose and hose valve and all fittings. As for Cmore....LP tractors are not ugly to us all. I guess it is in the eye of the beholder.

If your 500 gal LP tank for the house has a bottom outlet, you can have your gas man put a valve on it & w/proper hose, you can you can fill your LP tractor by gravity any time you want to. We used this method on both a 1,000 we had for the house & 500 gal we used for the hog barn. Talk to your LP supplier-if he's been around for a while, he can give you a lot of info.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
